What is Included in a CCRC Monthly Service Package?

Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) are vibrant living options for older adults who want to enhance their already active lifestyles and secure their futures in order to make the most out of retirement. They offer residents the option to receive the services they want and the opportunity to take advantage of campus amenities, all while safeguarding finances and planning for future health care needs.

What is a monthly service package?

When residents enter a CCRC, they pay a one-time entrance fee to cover the costs of housing and future health care needs, in addition to purchasing a monthly service package that covers the costs of utilities, regularly occurring services and campus amenities.

What amenities are included in the monthly service package?

A community lifestyle means having convenient access to a long list of amenities. A robust services and amenities package is a significant factor retirees consider when choosing to live in a CCRC like Fountaingate Gardens. Specific items differ among communities, but typically items that result in monthly expenditures – such as water, electricity, Internet service, and cable – are included in a CCRC monthly service package for no additional charge.

Campus amenities at Fountaingate Gardens will include a brand-new, state-of-the-art fitness center with resistance and aerobic training equipment, as well as an indoor, heated saltwater pool for water fitness classes. Residents will have access to an extensive library, outdoor walking paths, an arts center with vibrant art and education programs, a game room with a wet bar, and much more.

How does the monthly package compare to my current costs?

When compared to the bills you currently pay, the monthly service package at a CCRC is an excellent value.

Take a moment to consider your current monthly costs, including utilities, food, house maintenance, transportation and more. Do you pay additionally for home security, a gym membership, housekeeping services or educational programs?

After an honest assessment of current costs, many people find that the monthly bills they currently pay are often greater than the monthly service package at a CCRC. At Fountaingate Gardens, all of your monthly expenses are consolidated into one package that covers everything you pay for in your current house, with the addition of conveniently located amenities, exceptional services and security, now and in the future.
